This is a study that just came out from Stanford on the health
benefits of organic vs. conventional foods. When I saw it reported on last
night's news, shockingly the newscaster said the study showed no health benefit to
eating organic and that the study showed organic foods are not more nutritious
than conventional foods. Of course, on the news they were not discussing the
HARM done from the pesticides, hormones and antibiotics because they claimed all
the pesticide residue was "under legal limits". I looked up the
actual published study and it does, in fact state that
organic is healthier due to less pesticides. Amazing how the real info does not
get to the people! Beware of tricky reporting. If you walked into
the market and food was labeled SPRAYED WITH POISON, or NOT SPRAYED WITH
POISON, which would you pick? Just because the government says a "little bit of
poison" is okay, do you still want to consume it? Or feed it to your children?
If you can afford organic, please consider it. If not, consider planting
a small garden to grow your own food with organic soil. It's a thrill to pick
your own food and can be done on a small piece of land or in pots.
I will be discussing organic food and toxicity issues at length
on my new talk show, The SUZANNE Show starting September 26th on Lifetime.
